Skandia has received final FAA STC approval of its acoustic soundproofing kit for all variants of the Dassault Falcon 900. This is the fourth FAA STC approval awarded to Skandia for a soundproofing acoustic solution.

Skandia engineered and tested the soundproofing kit for the Falcon 900 series in 2021. The kit is said to deliver an enhanced cabin experience and increases passenger comfort in all phases of flight. In final testing, a significant overall sound reduction was achieved throughout the aircraft.

The kit is made available to operators with options including baggage damping, floor damping, thermal acoustic insulation bags, an overframe blanket and a carpet pad. Installation of the kit is simple and straightforward due to the intuitive kitting process of materials by Skandia as well as installation instructions and guidelines.

There are over 500 F900 jets in all models in service today. Garrett Ondrus, business unit manager of Skandia, sees a valuable opportunity for F900 operators: “The Falcon 900 is a great aircraft, and owners see value in improving the quality of the jet's long range capabilities,” he comments. “The system utilises our most technically advanced engineering and modern materials to produce a very quiet result. We have created the system in a way that owner/operators can select how much sound performance they want to add based on their budget, or how much weight they want to use. It is a smart solution that is going to bring a lot of enjoyment to these fast aircraft, especially for long range trips. Our goal is to continue to apply this technology across all business aircraft of every class.”

Skandia Acoustic System kits can be purchased directly from Skandia or through an MRO or completions centre.
